King to Serve as Roanoke Loan Officer
Farm Credit of the Virginias (FCV) announced that previous loan processor, Allie King, moved into the role of loan officer effective May 26, 2023. She will be working out of the Roanoke branch office.
King grew up on a small hobby farm in Dickenson County, VA before moving to Blacksburg to attend Virginia Tech, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Dairy Science in 2020. King has called the New River Valley home for the last seven years, and she and her husband currently run a beef cattle operation where they also raise hay and a vegetable garden.
King joined the Farm Credit team as a loan processor in 2021. Her favorite aspect of her two years with the Association has been the people, both co-workers and customer-owners. “I relish the chance to work alongside my colleagues, as the employees of Farm Credit are passionate about the work they do and they inspire me daily,” said King.
In regards to her new role, King is eager to put her knowledge of the industry to work to cultivate lasting relationships with customer-owners in Roanoke and the surrounding counties. She shared, “I am eager to help fulfill our mission and vision through my new role, and I look forward to the opportunity to support our local communities by providing reliable and consistent financing to meet our members’ needs.”
Chris Frazier, Roanoke and Abingdon Branch Manager, said, “Allie’s passion and knowledge of the agriculture industry will make her a lasting asset on the Roanoke lending team. We are excited to see her build relationships with farmers and rural homeowners in our area.”
